I suppose, since I'm stuck with unwilling celibacy at the moment, I can be the

one who takes this one for the team.... (for now.....) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Yay Bunnie!!! Finally feeling better here...don't need any added limitations right now ;)

PS...hope you don't have to remain in this unwilling state much longer.

My GERD has decided to say hi tonight. Probably because i was so stressed today :/

Its at the stage of "enough to be annoying, but not enough to take something for".

Man....lotsa unpsilly stuph goin' on, here... . . . . :( . . ...GERD (which I suppose actually CAN be somewhat psilly -- I've always thought the acronym to be, anyway), and a pending root canal. Have you had one before, Vynscent? My daughter was in a horrific accident when she was twelve and all four of her front teeth had to be root canalled -- the proceedure was like a walk in the park -- no pain, in and out in an hour. My sister has had two, also painless and no big deal. However, once we start talking about the $$$$. . . ..well, THAT was an ordeal..... :(

Sorry V :(

My husband has terrible teeth--despite excellent oral hygiene and dental visits. His teeth are soft, and after a while just crumble. He has had more root canals that I can count, and actually fell asleep during one of them! Hopefully, yours will so smoothly and painlessly.

Good luck Vince. They'll numb you (or put you out) and give you pain killers afterwards. I hope it goes smoothly.

Nope never had one before, but I have LOTS of fillings. Over 20... lost count along the way.I cna tell you every one of they was an extremely painful process to get done.

I brush/floss every day now... but when I was a teenager I could not be bothered and was haphazard with it, so i think I am paying for that now. All I know is right now my tooth REALLY hurts. The whole side of my face does, and even my temple feels tender. Grrr.

I missed the call from the doc office yesterday to set up the appointment. Grrr.

There is stuff at the pharmacy called red cross dental - it'll take the pain away until you get to the dentist. Warning - it tastes horrid! But does buy you time.. We take this along when we travel as my husband also has soft teeth that have a knack for breaking away from home.

Decidedly un-psilly! I will try to rectify this with a joke:

On the first Xmas, the first of three Wise Men stepped carefully into the stable but sank his golden slipper into a big pile of manure.”Jesus Christ!” he yelled.The woman beside the manger turned to her husband and said, “Now, Joseph, isn’t that a better name for the kid than Irving?”

Just got back from getting me hair trimmed. It was longer on the left side than the right, and was driving me nuts......it must grow faster on that one side since it was even when I last had it done. :huh:

Or I am lopsided :lol:

Luckily i've never had a root canal :blink: i have had four major fillings though (on my very back four teeth no less). I actually became un-numbed during one of them whilst he was working on it, not fun (he did call be brave though).

I've always had strong roots on my teeth. When i had my baby teeth, most of them (i kid not there were maybe 5 i got out myself) had to be removed at the dentist because the roots were the size of the tooth if not bigger :blink: they just would not desolve. I actually had a tooth bust in half (baby tooth) on pasta no less and i had to pull the rooty half out. :blink:

My teeth have strong, long roots too. Found out when I cracked a wisdom tooth on a popcorn kernel....<ouch> and had to have it pulled.

Took over an hour :o

    • Companies get so sneaky with labeling.  I stick with the companies that are dedicated gluten free if I am buying processed foods.  Most will have a website with a section under Frequent Q&A's.  If they don't, email or call to get clarification as to how the item is processed.  I know that my family can't eat anything that has been made on a shared line and then cleaned.  Good Luck....   
    • I get it on the back of my right leg and right elbow.  I have no idea why it's just limited to the right side of my body.  My family care doctor prescribed me a steroid and steroid cream.  The oral steroid has only made me grouchy and fat!  I'm probably going to stop taking it since it hasn't helped the rash much.  Good luck getting rid of yours!
    • Had The rash for years before I went gluten-free. My rash took about a month or two to heal and vanish. When I get glutened the rash areas start to itch a bit- besides being constipated it's my only clue! good luck and be patient 
    • Kaiser offers the full panel, but a primary care MD can not order it -- only a GI.  Again, a visual is not needed.  Damage is usually severe if it can be seen visually (e.g. Scalloping, etc.).  Villi are microscopic though.   When you got the referral, you probably should have found a GI on your own by searching through the Kaiser directory and finding one who has some mention of celiac disease in his bio.  Too late, but that is kind of how it works.  Your PCP does not know the GI docs.  The scheduler just makes appointments.  So, now,  that you have been referred to a GI, you can probably schedule another appointment on your own by passing your PCP.  Wait first for the pathologist's report.  They might not put it on the patient portal, so get a hard copy for your records.  If it is negative and they took four or biopsies, you will have your answer. Then you can consider trialing the diet.  If they did not take enough samples, ask for the DGP and EMA tests, including the control test IGA deficiency (which affects 10% of celiacs, but do not quote me on this).  You could wait a few years until you think damage is severe enough to find.  celiac disease can be hard to diagnose.  It can develop at anytime.   Don't forget you might have a gluten sensitivity too and not celiac disease.   Kaiser responds well to requests in writing.  Try the patient portal first before a registered letter.  If they are not following the standard level of care, they are at risk for a lawsuit.  Be nice.  Say something lame in your letter like,  "We had such a nice short visit, so I  forgot to ask ....blah, blah, blah." My own relatively new PCP is still learning about celiac disease.  That is okay.  At least she has an open mind.    
    • It is gluten free...I eat it regularly and have had no issues and it tastes yummy. 😀
